I woke up in Silent Hill today! It’s so foggy outside! Pretty cool though. I will be hiding out drinking green tea today I think (it’s vile, but so good for you I have to wait until it’s cool enough and down it!) blergh!
I’ve been uploading more chapters of ‘Love on the Run (From Zombies!) to Wattpad. They are only really drafts as I wrong it a long time ago and don’t want to spend weeks editing it when I’m offering it for free (I have other things I need to be sorting out and am drowning in editing at the moment) My wattpad profile es aqui; http://wattpad.com/LilyCrussell
Also, please go support a friend of mine (I say friend, we’ve never met, but we chat online all the time and she cracks me up!) she’s been working in the movie industry and has been writing a blog about it. Even I don’t know who ‘Van Murphy’ is as despite constant badgering, her lips are sealed! Her blog es aqui;http://ianamacmanus.blogspot.co.uk/?zx=5fc3dfa4f40f369a
It’s restricted because of the swearing, from what she’s told me there isn’t anything porny or awful other than the language.
If you can guess who ‘Van Murphy’ is, let me know as it’s driving me slightly mental. She’s given me ALL of her diary so far (there is hell of a lot more to come) to look through and I’m thinking of bribing her with cupcakes to find out. Also, she’s a Vegan which makes her a sister of mine as us weirdo Vegans have to stick together. Go check her out, she’s awesome. Also leave comments as she really wants feedback and having been through what she has, she can handle criticism.
Urgh! Just recently I can’t stop drinking tea! I’m thinking part of it is due to the weather being so like winter, that my body has shifted into ‘give up on cold drinks, ice, strappy tops and shorts’ mode. The heating has been switched on for goodness sake! Every day the weather is rubbish and grey and it’s either raining or looking like it’s about to. The only way us Brits make it through the winter is by thinking about Summer, and now that we’ve been cheated out of it, I think people are going to start hibernating!
I did something to my shoulder at pole last night, so struggled to sleep and am depending on tea to get me through the day! I’m working on edits for a NEW novel which I’m desperately trying to get finished so I can send it out to my Beta readers, but it’s a real struggle. I’m not feeling remotely inspired by it at the moment and I’ve hit a dead end…again. The ending sucked so needs rewriting and there are threads that don’t work out properly. Grrrr! I was hoping to get this one out to agents and publishers asap as I haven’t had anything new to send out for ages! ‘Of Darkness and Light’ is making the rounds….AGAIN with the info of how many downloads I’ve had etc, but some of those I sent out at the beginning of the year and I’ve not even had half of them back yet!
Please could you go Like my fanpage if you haven’t already! I’d love to get up to 900 by my Birthday (Next Wednesday)
I LOVE giving stuff away. I absolutely love it, so go support my fanpage on facebook and you could win some SWAG! And I have more coming. I might have to put a limit on it soon though as postage is costing me more than rent, food and everything else put together! Stupid expensive mail service!
I’m working on a new manuscript. By new, I mean it’s not related to ‘Of Darkness and Light’ but it’s not new in the sense that I’ve written it recently. It’s one that has been sitting in various states on my laptop for about a year now. I decided it’s the closest to being finished and would make sense to work on it and get it out to agents. Unfortunately I am completely stuck. The ending I had previously written…sucks, for want of a better word. It doesn’t work, it’s messy and I don’t like it. The problem is, I now have a HUGE gap in the manuscript and can’t think my way out of it without using what I would call a ‘lazy’ idea. Something too blatant or conventional.
I was hoping to get it out to beta readers by the end of the week, but I’m not happy with it. The problem is, I can’t ask anyone for help without giving the whole plot away and I’m seriously worried about plagarism (It’s an idea that I don’t think has been covered recently (or at all) in YA fiction) I was really excited about it, but now that I’m stuck, it’s annoying the high heck out of me.
Anyway, head over to my facebook fan page as I’m having tonnes of giveaways at the moment in the form of caption competitions with some great prizes. (I’ve spent over £200 on postage over the last fortnight…oops!) So go take a gander. You can always use anything you win for giveaways on your own site/blog/review page.
What are you listening to at the moment? I’m completely in love with the album ‘Ex-girlfriends’ by Low Millions. I love Adam Cohen who is the singer of the band. He usually does his own albums, but I found this on Amazon and can’t stop listening to it! Love it!
More importantly! My ebook ‘Of Darkness and Light’ will be FREE (YES FREE!!!!!) Next weekend. PLEASE ensure you tell everyone you know that likes paranormal romance and YA/Teen fiction because…IT’S FREE! Even if you hate it, you haven’t paid for it so it’s all good! 30th June to 1st July on Amazon. Just search my name or ‘Of Darkness and Light’ on Amazon and you’ll find it.
Just incase you haven’t been paying attention;
I spoil you lot! Love you all x
I was intending to keep with the kitten theme, but couldn’t find a picture of Johnny Depp with a Kitten. So here is Johnny Depp with a dead Raven/Crow on his head. Not a happy bunny as they’re my favourite birds. I’m hoping they’re fake.
Something I don’t understand; Why is he called The Lone Ranger if he always has Tonto with him? ;p
